Sheep graze near the recently closed Tower Colliery coal mine near the village of Hirwaun, Wales. The Irish require at least 6,000 sheep as hosts of this year's Golden Shears World Championships. But they're more than 1,000 short with just weeks to go before an event dubbed "the Olympics of sheep shearing." Organizers said March 24 they need ewes, aged 12 to 14 months, to ensure that all competitors are supplied similarly shaped sheep.
